This 5.2-inch Android handset has been spotted on Amazon with a full metal body, packing an octa-core processor, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB internal storage, and running Android 7.0 Nougat.

The upcoming Galaxy J (2017) handsets have been mentioned by many rumors and leaks so far, but now it looks like the Galaxy J5 (2017) is almost official. Although Samsung still has to announce it, the handset was spotted on the website of German retailer Cyberport, but also on Amazon France.

According to these listings mentioned earlier, the Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017) features an octa-core processor with a clock speed of 1.6 GHz, next to 2 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage. Dual-SIM support is also present, next to NFC, Bluetooth 4.2, a 2,600 mAh battery, and Android 7.0 Nougat. Although these specs clearly place it in the mid-range sector of the market, the new Galaxy J5 comes with a full metal body.

The date shown by the display of the product found on Amazon is June 5, so it is very likely to see the official announcement late today. On the other hand, the Galaxy J5 (2017) spotted on Cyberport suggested a June 22 launch. We should find out everything about it sooner or later this month anyway, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
